Two local SCORE chapters, SCORE Frederick and SCORE Four State, merged recently to form a new chapter, SCORE Mid-Maryland. The new chapter is made up of more than 32 certified business mentors from management, marketing, financial reports, nonprofits and social media.

SCORE Mid-Maryland’s main address will be in Frederick and will serve Allegany, Garrett, Washington, Frederick, and Carroll counties in Maryland; Franklin County in Pennsylvania and Jefferson and Berkeley counties in West Virginia.

Since 1964, SCORE, formerly known as the Service Corps of Retired Executives, has helped more than 10 million aspiring entrepreneurs and small-business owners through mentoring and business workshops.

Would it be too much trouble to spell out what SCORE stands for in the article? Come on FNP.


It doesn't seem to be an acronym.


Typically when an organization name is in all capitals it is an acronym. You're right, I've searched for score, went to their web page and did not find what it stands for. It apparently has been around since 1964. I've never heard of it but I've certainly heard of the Chamber of Commerce (not hard to figure out what they due based on the name unlike "SCORE."
